Jennifer Hudson's Whitney Houston Tribute at Grammys - Watch Now!

Jennifer Hudson's Whitney Houston Tribute at Grammys - Watch Now!

Jennifer Hudson looks absolutely stunning on stage at the 2012 Grammy Awards held at Staples Center on Sunday (February 12) in Los Angeles.

The 30-year-old singer performed a sweet and simple rendition of the classic song “I Will Always Love You” in a tribute to the late singer Whitney Houston.

It was announced last night shortly after Whitney‘s death that Jennifer would perform a tribute performance during the Grammys.

Jennifer‘s performance followed an In Memoriam segment that honored such talents as Amy Winehouse, Clarence Clemons, and Steve Jobs.

    That was SO touching, SO beautiful, I’m crying right now. I love Whitney, and I love Jennifer H.

    all those who think that one artist can sing at the same way of another one.. such Hudson – Whitney… are very wrong.. are different voices, different training they had.. so dont be stupid.. none has similar voices.. at least a slightly common tone tempo vibratto maybe anyway.. none could sing as WH did.. none will as she used to do… each artist each voice each personality is unique.. dont compare.. she did what she could.. she was really touched when she was singing… mm immature people criticizing

    Jennifer Hudson scored big last night based upon the media coverage of her performance this morning. Hudson appears to be the new heir for this generation to take over where Houston left off. No one can ever replace Ms. Houston, but her music will live on through artist like Jennifer Hudson. Hudson performance was magical at the grammy’s.

    I didn’t like it at all.

  • stop

    JH did wonderful, she was very respectful and low key. She could have blown the song out of the park, but that was not what she was there for. I commend her for not making it about her because if she wanted to she could have brought the house down!!!!

  • Tocha

    I didnt like it! Jennifer sounded horrible lol

  • Julie3

    Why exactly don’t people swoon over Jennifer like they do Adele? She’s at least just as good. Just wondering.

    It’s always the people who are so negative about life, that will find negativity in anything. So my question is, who are they to judge?. Jennifer Hudson did this song justice and she gave it her all. You can hear it in her voice, and you can see it in her expression on her face. She also received a Standing Ovation. This young lady is gifted and talented. She sings from her heart. Whereas these people, who are complaining about Jennifer – they don’t know her, and they haven’t walked in her shoes. They don’t know the emotions that she is going through or what she is feeling, while singing this song. Millions of people were watching, and she came through with a performance that was heart felt.

  • meh

    really bad singing, seriously, don’t sing

    forget jennifer hudson, she will never be a whitney houston level singer

    it needs to be the original song sung by whitney

    anything else is offensive

    jennifer hudson advertized she cant sing with that ‘tribute’

  • oreilly

    @meh: I really didn’t think Jennifer Hudson’s tribute song to Whitney Houston was all that great. No one can hit the notes llike Whitney and I feel it was pretty bold of Jennifer to try to do so. Didn’t Jennifer sing at Michael’s funeral? Seems kinda creepy, Almost like she is trying to get her break or seek fame from the two icon’s death. ugh.

    Ask David Foster who can sing WH song equal or better??? She’s an Asean and you know who she is..

    Charice is the best!!!

  • Brent

    Do not get me wrong Jennifer did a good job but I think it would have been more special to have had Dolly their to sing the song…

  • longchamp

    oreilly – you get it.

    it had a ‘the king is dead, long live the king!’ feel to it.

  • Empress


    I Jennifer had put the same amount of emotion she put in when she performed it here when Whitney was alive and was watching…she would have broken down. All in all..she did a good .

  • NotUrAvgGirl

    @jackie: Your post to these knuckleheads to view the evidence for themselves is awesome!

  • oreilly

    @NotUrAvgGirl: Huh? Jennifer Hudson has been trying for a long time to break through to the big time and just can’t seem to get to the level Whitney and Michael did. It’s like she has no shame feeding off the dead. It’s sad. Anything for fame and fortune huh NotAverGrl? Alot of other people feel the same to bad you can’t see it. I just heard Charice tonite WOW!
